Historical Events Portrayed in Elaborate Tableaux at New York —The Floats Described. TJIF, PAGEANT. NEW Yor.iv,.; Oct. 13. — Electricity furnished the-main features of the street pageant Wednesday night. Incandescent .and arc lamp's turned Broadway and Ejfih avenue into blazing- pathways of light for the hundreds of thousands who were banked along 1 the route of the parade. Globes of fire swung across the intersecting-streets and turned- black night into dazzling day as far as the eye could see up and down the two great highways. Route and Order oftlio Xiglit Parade. The route of the parade was up Broadway to Fourth street, west round Washing-ton square, to Fifth venue,, to Fourteenth s'treet, to Fourth venue, to Seventeenth street, to Fifth venue,.to 'Fifty-ninth street.

A: Zimmerman, The cyclists rod'e at work showing the whole process ot printing- a newspaper. Official .pro- grammes were distributed as souvenirs from this car as it rolled alone the route. Following- the press car came the car of "Music," the car of "Science," the,car of "Poetry and Romance," and then came a car which won probably more applause than any otherin the parade. It was the car of • -'.'The.....American Woman," and was. intended''to show the supremacy of American women over those of all other parts of the world. The supremacy was shown by a beautiful maiden sitting in a rocking- chair on cop of the glob<T, :upids offering her hearts and garlands lyiag at her feet.

Following the grand marshal was the banner of fame, and then came the twenty, historical cars or floats. The "car of fame" led the long line, and was followed by a band of prehistoric Americans, In this car the winged deity "Fame" was represented as flying over the western hemisphere to announce to all nations the advent of the Columbian celebration. After this group came another banner and "the car of the stone age," or prehistoric Indians. -.This prehistoric car was surrounded-.by early inhabitants of this continent, while others were represented as fighting with giant turtles, bears and snakes.

Last and not least of the beautiful floats came the car of Electricity. This masterpiece was labeled the "Hydra of Lightning, Controlled by the Genius of Edison." It was 30 feet long, was drawn by ten horses and was illuminated by 3,000 electric lights. By the words mentioned, "The Hydra of Lightning Controlled by the Genius of Edison," appeared a giant monster head filled with electric lights; By lines of miniature incandescent lights thirty beautiful young girls -in", metallic costumes stood on a "revolving disk and reflected the thousands of lights on the float. In the -center of this group was a globe with long latitudinal lines marked in electric lights. It is safe to say that such a magnificent float has never before been seen, and the applause with which it was greeted showed it was appreciated by all. HOMESTEAD EVACUATED. The State Troops Strike Their Tonts and Leave tho Sheriff In Charge. HOMESTEAD, Pa., Oct. 13.—The military espionage that has been kept over this town for ninety-five days came to an end at 10 a- m.

IS.—James Kelly, a wood enameler of this city, was probably fatally shot on a Lake Erie special train while returning from the Peru barbecue.

"He marched through the oat- carrying a revolver and shot at random. It is said he left the train at Bennett's switch. HELD up. WICHITA, Kan., Oct IS.— Train No. iS2, east bound, on the Missouri Pacific railroad, was held up and the Pacific express car was robbed by masked men just outside of Caney, Kan., at 10:30 o'clock Wednesday night, but, as all the express money was transferred at Conway Springs, the outlaws cannot have secured much booty. As the train was leaving Caney a man mounted the front platform of the combination 'baggage and express car and from there climbed over the tender. As Engineer Eggieston stopped his train between the switches the robber covered him and the fireman with, revolvers and ordered them to pull out further. When the whistling- post was reached a second member of the gang was in waiting, and as soon as the engine and express car had been uncoupled the engineer was again ordered to go ahead. In a deep cut, half a mile out of Caney, the train was brought to a standstill, and at the point of their revolvers the outlaws forced the engine crew to open the express car. Express Messenger J. N, Maxwell, seems to have been unprepared for resistance, as he opened up his safe and delivered what money he had. The robbers then fired a few shots through the car, hitting no one, however, and left. Superintendent Harding thinks there must have been at least three men implicated in the robbery. It is thought the men were the same who last week held up tho station agent at Sedan, Kan. Didn't Get Much. Both robbers wore heavy black masks and their clothing was spattered with mud, indicating that they were mounted and had ridden hard. The express messenger claims he does not know the value of the booty secured. The express officials and railway men at different points along the line claim that the robbers did not secure $500, if, indeed, they got that amount. When the train reached Tyro the watchman was told of the robbery, but no effort was made to get a posse and pursue the robbers. This morning the railway people sent a squad of officers to Tyro and will begin an active search for the men.
